The Raiders made no announcements regarding the hiring of former Cardinals and Chiefs defensive coordinator Clancy Pendergast Monday, although a team source confirmed an interview had taken place and that there could be something forthcoming this week.
ESPN reported Pendergast was hired to coach defensive backs with Oakland. According to the Raiders, no contract has been signed.
According to Raiders.com, Pendergast is now officially on board.
No word as to whether Pendergast will coach along with Lionel Washington, essentially placing Willie Brown, or if Washington has been given permission to seek other employment after one year on the job. In fact, the Raiders says only that he is joining the coaching staff and doesn’t designate a specific responsibility.
